Expanded Polystyrene Insulation Blocks

Insulation blocks to install when a thermal resistance is needed in addition to a higher compressive strength than the existing soil conditions. Insulating material offering a high compressive strength for green roofs and roof-terraces. Used as backfill material underneath road infrastructures, bridge abutments, bridges and overpass access roads. Install the SR.LWFTM insulation blocks when soil conditions are unstable or sloped to limit settlement, shifting, sliding or compressing underlying ground or when a higher compressive strength for existing conditions is necessary.

Prevents uplifting of the structures that may be exposed to frost, limits frost heave from causing cracking and premature deterioration on pavement or concrete exposed surfaces.

Insulating material offering a high compressive strength for green roofs and roof-terraces.

Indicated as insulating material that also serves as backfill material for space underneath residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural concrete slabs.

Type 1, 2 and 3 available in various compressive strengths, varying from 70 kPa to 276 kPa [10 PSI to 40 PSI].
